Sandy Point, Canada
Playwright: Natalie Meisner
Girl meets girl. Girl marries girl. They want to have babies… but they need a little help.
Helen calls Nova Scotia home and Paige is from the south of France. After meeting at an airport, they uproot their lives for one another, settle in Calgary, and decide to have a baby together. Thus begins the frustrating, complicated, and straining journey to find a biological father for their coveted future offspring. Speed Dating for Sperm Donors delivers humour, wit, and emotion through high stakes and rich characters that result in a delightfully heartwarming story.
